I'd say you were lucky. I'd not have gotten that close to her cubs.

Thanks All!!!!
Thankfully, Mom wasn't around........At least, I didn't see her!!!!
Here's a close up of the two lower cubs. While the upper cub seemed
restless, these two were OUT!!!!!

How lucky to come across them like that. I love the smokey mountains. Only once did I see a bear and it was gone just as fast as I saw it.
Good shot

I was lucky for sure! Here's one more pic showing the upper cub.
At first restless, while his sibblings were fast asleep, he finally
found a spot that was JUST RIGHT!!!!!! How they manage to keep
from falling off those narrow limbs while fast asleep is beyond me!!!!

Wow...and tripplets too! That's rare. I agree though, after a shot of the three and maybe one other, my eyes would have down and not up - looking for momma bear as I backed the heck out of there! Nice capture!
